Your knees aren’t getting any younger, and those backyard games of hoops played on your cracked asphalt court are taking a toll.
Or maybe your knees are fine, but you have young kids at home and you’d like to channel some of that energy out onto a new backyard basketball court.
Whether you want to resurface an existing basketball or tennis court or you’re starting from scratch, a Flex Court tile surface is a great choice.
Here in New York and Connecticut, concrete and asphalt courts fall victim to some brutal weather conditions. They heave and crack, resulting in uneven — even dangerous — surfaces.
Sure, you could patch the cracks, or have the surface covered with an acrylic overlay. But those are short-term solutions. Acrylic surfaces last just five to six years. Flex Court modular tiles last for at least 10.
Here are five more reasons Flex Court tiles are a perfect, more permanent solution.
Flex Court Benefit #1: Comfort
The ¾-inch thick, shock-absorbing, suspended surface reduces playing fatigue. Your joints will thank you: Tile surface offers a 30 percent reduction in force on knees and ankles. Tennis players report they can comfortably play 25 percent longer on tile than on concrete courts.
The shock-absorbing nature of Flex Court tile can reduce the impact from falls that might otherwise cause injury. (Of course, we know that YOU never fall, but it’s a nice feature to offer your opponents.)
Flex Court tiles are also cooler than asphalt and concrete, thanks to heat-reflective materials.
Flex Court Benefit #2: Durability
Flex Court offers a 16-year manufacturer direct warranty and a 25-year life expectancy. You’d resurface with acrylic three times during that time period.
Built-in UV protection aids in outdoor color performance and UV/AO Stabilizer for best color fastness.
Flex Court Benefit #3: Low Maintenance
Maintenance is as simple as keeping leaves blown off and an occasional power washing to remove dust and dirt.
Mold? Nope. The tiles are anti-microbial and won’t attract mold like conventional court surfaces.
No more sweeping or sponging big water puddles. Rain quickly drains through the tennis and basketball court tiles, allowing you to hit the court quickly after the rain stops.
Winter snow and ice? No problem. You can even add a frame of boards around your backyard court and flood it for ice skating or hockey.
Flex Court Benefit #4: Design Choices
Create a court that’s uniquely your own. Flex Court is modular, so you can design a court in just about any size — through your professional Flex Court designer and installer can help you choose one from a number of popular sizes.
You can also choose from a large selection of colors in any combination. You can even add your favorite sports or corporate logo.
Flex Court Benefit #5: Improve Your Game
Flex Court’s super grip surface design means you can jump and turn without slipping. And its shock-absorbing, suspended surface provides better ball bounce for great game performance.
